Coaching centres shut in Kashmir Valley
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Education Minister Syed Altaf Bukhari on Sunday ordered the closure of all private coaching centres in the Kashmir Valley for 90 days, officials said.
The decision follows the Minister's warning to students to join classes or face the consequence of educational institutions being closed down.
Chairing a meeting of officers of his department here on Sunday, Bukhari said the order should be immediately communicated to the district authorities for strict compliance.
The move follows spiralling student protests in the Kashmir Valley seeking justice to the Kathua rape and murder victim.
